Not easy to run at all. In fact, very complex. However, there is a map plaster last winter of a run to the hot side. Do a search. Idle is your friend out there unless you stay close to the ramp.

I live a mile from this lake and drive by it daily... the lake is low low lowwww.. like Frank said, if you get to the hot water side idle is your friend. Dig on this website till you find that map plaster...
Also, on the cold water side on the main lake portion, stay out of the middle of the lake, you will lose a lower unit.

Can't give you a fishing report though... Haven't been out there this year yet, been building a house..

If you launch here makes life easier. Would check with locals to determine if its for you.

95% of boats that fish this lake can launch here IF you know how to manuever the ramp...Drove by the other day and someone dropped into one of the holes and the water was going in the back hatch of their tahoe getting pulled out.

Didn't know about any holes... I launch kayak. Have seen some big arse boats and pontoons launch there and wondered why more didn't use it. Usually room for 4 or 5 to park somewhere along the side. cheers
